What: Evidence Dance Company

Central Park SummerStage
“Reflecting the extensive reach of hip-hop culture, Full Circle Soul Productions has been spreading the art of break-dancing, rap and street-culture since 1996. Founded by artistic directors Gabriel “Kwikstep” Dionisio and Anita ” Rokafella” Garcia, FCP hosts workshops for young dancers, singers and artists, and brings their work to such unexpected environments as the Library of Congress. In a review of one Full Circle Performance last year, the New York Times said: “There were hints of the basketball courts and the African dance that influenced hip-hop dance, but the spectacular concluding spins on all parts of the body recalled nothing so much as fast, ornamented ballet fouettés.”
